Sneak peak of my Research of Writing in YA/MG Fiction webinar. (When I say I’m looking for manuscripts that’ll teach me stuff, I’m on this level #MSWL)

Happening on Thursday night! Join me: dakotas.scbwi.org/events/using-r…

We got any fashionistas out there? @TaherehMafi’s A Very Large Expanse of Sea has my #MSWL pining for a #YA novel where fashion—and the liberation of clothing autonomy—unites unlikely friends.

#MSWL: Anyone out there have a YA manuscript with some fencing? I’ve got a hankering for a little foil work.

#MSWL the serious girl power plus honest emotional impact of said power found in @elockhart’s The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks 🙌🏼 Seriously, I wish I could go back to fifteen (yeah . . . let that sink in) just so I could read Frankie’s saga and find myself in it.

#MSWL I want to see more YA #ownvoices stories including the mythology of the Americas. I love me some Greek/Egyptian/Nordic retellings, but I'm looking for something closer to home.

#MSWL a bunch of teens who discover they have super powers but just use them to do normal every day stuff. Controlling the weather for optimum spring break rays. Flying to school to save on gas.

2019 #MSWL: let’s get some YA with teens who are obsessed with strange things. Think The Thing About Jellyfish. I wanna learn some weird stuff.
